Look Ma, he can chew gum and walk at the same time... sorta

I've been trying to teach myself to sing and play the guitar at the same time. Now I'm sure to many people this is a little bit like saying, 'I'm teaching myself to walk and chew gum' but believe it or not, singing and playing is fucking hard! Well, for me anyway... but I'm getting better at it.

I have a horrible voice, and I'm certainly not going to be taking Jaymz Hetfield's place fronting Metallica, but I am now able to sing along and play some simple tunes from memory.

A couple example tunes:
Social Distortion: Prison Bound, Story of My Life
Misfits: Skulls

I usually save the 'singing' part for the tail end of practice so as not to subject the household to too much torture.

And the next time you start to rag on Metallica, ask yourself if you could play 'Master of Puppets' and sing the words at the same time.
